Bio Photo I am Cleo Metcalf I was born November 22 1937, in Howard county Indiana. I have lived around Galveston Indiana all my life. And I have lived in Galveston from 1958 until now. I graduated from Northwestern High School in 1956. I married Beverly Downhour in Galveston Indiana Cass Co.on Oct. 10 1958. She lived in Galveston and graduated from Galveston High School in May 1958. We have 1 daughter, we have one grandson, we have one great grandaughter, I have entered the Galveston cemetery in findagrave so people can find their ancestors. Some of it is from The Old Richardville Publication. It was compiled by Betty Zane [Darland] Tucker.And taken from Galveston cemetery records and plat books Through 1995 with and Addendum from 1996 to 1997 and from obituaries from the Kokomo Tribune and the Peru Tribune and Phros Tribune and from the Galveston cemetery records. And also information that I have been emailed. Thank you for checking. You might find something wrong if you do email me and I will be happy to correct it. This is all the names that I recorded from The Galveston cemetery book Old Richardville Publication and it is finally up to date as of 2010 I have now put pictures of most of the grave stones from Galveston cemetery on findagrave. I have no problem transfering memorials if it is not my family. email

Emmett E. Swafford # 62161799
Hello Cleo,

I wanted to point out to you that the above name, Emmett E. Swafford, is not the right name for that marker. If you look closer you will notice that at the top of the gravestone it reads: Wife of Emmett H. Swafford.

So, I want to let you know that his wife’s name is, Margaret (Becknell) Swafford. The date is correct for the memorial, just the name is wrong.

Margaret Becknell is the 2nd marriage of Emmett E. Swafford #13067644.

Emmett E. Swafford 1st wife was Florence A. (Stanley) Swafford # 13068238

Thank you very much for your dedicated work to helping people find their families.

I transferred this back to you so you could delete it. It is a duplicate memorial. Even if you transfer it to me, I still cannot delete it because I did not create it.
Memorial #19315696 needs to be deleted by you.

I goofed, I need to have you transfer Marie Lillie Guy Logan back to me. I put the wrong parent on her memorial. Thanks for letting me get this information on these memorials.

Correction to Hettie Alice Daggett
Hi, Cleo,

Galveston Cemetery: When you get a chance,
found another one that has been entered incorrectly.
The tombstone picture on Hattie Alice Pearcy should be moved to Hettie Alice Daggett (1912264)

Hettie Alice Daggett
born 21 Jul 1866
died 24 Sep 1868
The file listed as Hattie Alice Pearcy needs to
be deleted. Just entered in error.
It also was accidentally using the birth and death dates of our Hattie Rayburn Pearcy.

Thanks for your assistance,

Hi, Cleo!

Please correct one entry on this memorial.
Mary Cotterman married George Weaver.
it says Cotterman in the bio area.
that's her maiden name.


I've enjoyed all the work you've done. Great job gathering all this info and pixs.

Request correction
Please correct your entry for John Wesley Pearcy.
1) His middle name is spelled Wesley
2) His parents were Charles Alva Pearcy (19895494) and Hattie Minerva Rayburn (129733625).
3) John "Doc" Pearcy and Mary J. Carroll Pearcy were his grandparents, not parents.

Thank you. I'll be glad to take over any of these
Pearcy Memorials if you like. You've done a great job on so many entries.

Hattie Minerva Pearcy
Can you please unlink your Hattie Alice Pearcy entry to Howard Hawthorne Pearcy. It is incorrect.
Easy mistake, names so similar. I will add a correct entry for Howard's mother.
Thank you.
